I Dreamed Of Love - Poem by Valerie Dohren

I dreamed of love
but not like this –

a silent heart
a frozen kiss

vain conceit, deceit

words unmeant
passion spent.


I dreamed of love
the gentle kind –

sweet and true
to ease the mind

unmeasured, treasured

soft and pure
ever sure.

    I love this poem.
    We all dream of love in its upmost form. We do find so many mean forms of 'love' that the love our dreams sometimes seems unreal. But we cannot give up. Love is real, love is wonderful. Keep believing, Val, keep dreaming. I keep trying unconcitional love myself. I only succeed in brief moments and it seems more of coincidences than something I really did. But we have to keep beleiving, Val, keep dreaming.
    Excellent poem

    What is love then Valerie? Did you dream of it quite differently than every one one us would?
    What is perfection is illogical as well.

    Just like love on a hot afternoon, not what one would wish for. A startling revelation-bittersweet (Report) Reply

    Reminiscent of your earlier sonnet Speak Truly If You Deem To Speak Of Love wherein you wrote 'For truth should always be lovers tool'
    Another excellent poem

    sweet is your words
    smooth are your tears
    needing a slight rest
    a meeting between love and dream
